IDK what happened to this macbook pro, the hard drive seems courpted or something, so this leaves me with 2 options:

1. use a PC laptop HDD - i know this will be an issue as PC harddrive are formatted differently than Macs

2. wipe the original mac HDD and reinstall the OS - this is also a problem as I don't have any OSX disks nor do I can I format it using the macbook

please help :(

either way you're screwed
The pc hdd will need formatting plus osx installed.

Do Macs have a recovery partition? Google says YES!!
